Notes & Reviews:

The works on 'In the Beginning', the debut Avie release by the Gloucester Cathedral Choir, were all written in the shadow or the aftermath of World War II, and unite composers of three nationalities who shared a gift of marrying melody to poetry. The choir, who can trace its origins back some 900 years, is conducted by distinguished choral conductor and organist Andrew Nethsingha.
